Kids in the Hall. One of my all time favourite tv shows. Having lived in Toronto for 6 years just before it started, I did manage to get some of the “in” jokes. One of the funny random characters in it was the guy walking down the street offering to sharpen knives. IIRC in one skit he comes to a house with blood spattered across the front window and the occupant comes out for his knives to be sharpened. The amusing thing was that the knife sharpener guy was a real person in Toronto who did just that.Having clicked on just one of their sketches, a while back, I soon found Youtube suggesting more, as it does, reminding me of them.
In the UK, this Canadian troupe came on at an hour, when they hoped no one was watching. Which is how they got away with it.
They were amazing. It was full-on gross-out stuff at times but not without pathos - witness the Chicken Lady!
So, you're a Chicken-Lady!
Chicken lady was hilarious and very disturbing at the same time. I loved cabbage head guy and the flying pig.
